Vaughn's trademark sense of humor continues to distinguish this urban fantasy series, and the seamless integration of a variety of paranormal creatures (including vampires, werewolves, and shape-shifters) in the everyday world is entertaining…readers new to the Kittyverse will also find a fine introduction to this richly populated, fascinating paranormal world.
"What makes Vaughn's terrific stories really pop is how she manages to combine outright thrills with an offbeat sense of humor and then mesh it with Kitty's dogged determination. The result (entertainment exemplified!")
"This refreshing froth of light entertainment avoids werewolf dominance clichés and obvious racial stereotypes in favor of communication, action, and adorable old-married-couple sweetness."
I relished this book. Enough excitement, astonishment, pathos, and victory to satisfy any reader. (Charlaine Harris on Kitty and the Midnight Hour)
The open nature of Kitty's character and the way Vaughn makes her such a likeable character make this the only urban fantasy world where I want to read every book of the series.
